This afternoon the Ocracoke Youth Center is conducting a fund-raising car wash at the Community Center. Following the car wash there will be a Fish Fry, starting at 4:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Youth Center. Fortunately for the young people washing cars it's sunny and clear, albeit a bit chilly. The temperature has been hovering in the upper 50's most of the day.
